1997-98 Bowman's Best w/ scans! - buckunteer - 12-21-2012 02:33 PM

As many of you know, this product is my old school weakness. I pulled 2 MJ refractors out of the first three boxes I broke.

The last couple boxes, however, haven't yielded much. Usually I beat the odds but hit lousy players. Aside from a nice Kobe refractor that saved one of those boxes I've hit nada.

This break proved much the same. Hit a Grant Hill Best Techniques refractor (1:48) that I already had, a Tony Battie Best Cuts refractor (1:96) that I already had as well. Best inserts were the two pictured below, KG Best Cuts and Avery Johnson base atomic refractor. Also pulled a Best Techniques Payton if you're interested crime!

So I'm thinking I'm pretty much done with these...until the next-to-last pack anyway...









BOOM!!!

Shocked this came out, my faith in the product is restored!

Thanks for looking everyone, all FT/FS as usual, except the MJ Smile

Thanks for the comments guys!

At this point, I've busted I think 6 boxes, which is 144 packs. Still haven't seen an auto, the "easiest" of which to pull is 1:373 packs. The atomic refractor autos are like 1:5983 or something absurd like that, so I need to break a LOT more boxes to pull the Richmond autos I need haha.

That mj is the atomic, right? Sweet hit! I grabbed the atomic from the LCS last week and was wondering what the odds on those are. By any chance would you know?

Yep it's the atomic! For these it's 1:96 packs (4 boxes) I believe. I have the Olajuwon as well actually, pulled it in a previous box. I've still never hit a mirror image or best cuts atomic refractor, those are twice as tough! (1:192).

And btw, obviously I didn't hit the kobe atomic mirror image to complete the rainbow, but if you want the base and refractor Kobe Mirror Images I'm still willing to do a trade/sale Smile

I actually dumped a lot of my football on the bay this weekend so I have some PayPal. What would you be looking for on the Kobe's? I am not sure that I have anything to trade for them but if I do let me know.

I checked your org JMarch, didn't see anything I need PC-wise. Anything I have marked as FT is also FS if you're interested, so check me whenever you have a chance!

Sorry I don't need to trade for the MJ now Wink
